We have had it since March and we have used it many times. leaving for a weeks vacation tomorrow. the only thing i would reccomend would be to get a 2nd A/C unit for bedroom. Only one unit is a struggle but other than that it is great!

Not familiar with your new rig but if you have 50amp service, a consideration would be to install a second small roof air unit, 11000btu, in the bedroom. Very classy looking btw.

The Jayco website indicates the Pinnacle comes with 50 amp service. It lists a bedroom 13,500 btu low profile AC as an option. The coach may already have the wiring in place.

I have to ask how you calculated your numbers to stay within Ford's limits. I have a F350 and this unit would push the limits on the GVWR. I'm good for 11,500 lbs - 8000lbs for the truck = 3500 lbs for the trailer pin, me, the wife, the dog and all our gear in the truck plus fuel. I just can see how I'm going to tell my wife that she can't come on any trips.

The F250 only has a GVWR of 10,000 lbs.

The pulling is not the question...it is the hauling and the trucks GVWR and rear GAWR,
